Excavations at North Albany
10,000 year old Aquatic ruins discovered in couples' back yard.
11 months ago, archaeologist Sarah Williams and her team, received an unlikely phone call. Residents of N Albany in Chicago's Logan Square neighborhood were reporting abnormal ground shifts and faint sounds rising from the gutters often likened to a running faucet. After months of extensive excavations, Williams unearthed a 4.6 foot tall fur-encrusted structure estimated to be around 10,000 years old. Over the next few weeks, the team would discover dozens of frighteningly well-preserved architectural ornaments, plant species, slimy meadows, and objects of ritual with their flames still burning--believed to have once made up one of the most innovative Aquatic Cities of the ancient world.
The public is invited to view these recent excavations at the cite of discovery from 5-8 on Sunday September 30th.
